“One mom, one dad, 2.5 kids and a white picket fence? This week on Snap Judgment we get real. From WNYC Studios, Snap proudly presents…”Nuclear Family.”
Genetic Sexual Attraction [GSA]…
This segment starts at 26:50.
I’ve heard of this sort of thing before…when relatives who are estranged [or maybe never met] finally meet…and they end up having sex with each other.
Sometimes it turns into long term relationships…and there have been a few high profile examples over the years, involving celebrities [IE: Mackenzie Phillips].
While I do wonder if GSA is a real thing…it’s hard to deny the relative commonality of consensual incest. Is there something there which some of us pick up on, that others don’t?…Something that makes a close blood relative, especially appealing?…Or do we somehow lack an inborn nature, which would make close relatives unappealing under all circumstances?
I’ve believed for years…that the natural inclination of humans when offered sex, is to willingly have sex…and that when we choose not to, it’s because of other mitigating circumstances. Yet even if turned down…many will have still wanted the sex…and will possibly masturbate to the fantasy later, in private.
I think…sex is every bit as alluring with a blood relative, as it is with a non-relative…and that no biological barrier is in place, to ward off it’s temptation.
Whatever barriers exist [or don’t], are cultural…as well as a matter of interpersonal relationships…
…For example…if marrying your first cousin is common place in society, then nobody is going to think anything odd of it…
…And as to interpersonal relationships…if a family member is especially mean towards you, you are probably not going to want to play around with them sexually, or be comfortable having any form of sex with them.
Of course…there are always exceptions.
